What is Trust Administration?
Trust administration refers to the legal process that happens after the death of a trustor (the holder of the trust). The trustee (the person or entity assigned by the trustor to manage the trust) initiates the administration of the trust.
This process involves a series of tasks, which can include:
- Notifying beneficiaries
- Settling the trustor’s debts
- Managing the trust assets
- Filing taxes
- Distributing the remaining assets to the designated beneficiaries as per the terms of the trust
Trust administration is typically less public and more efficient than probate (the legal process of distributing a deceased person’s assets), often making it a more favorable option for many families. However, it can be complex and requires a detailed understanding of the law, especially when it comes to managing potential conflicts of interest, understanding tax implications, and distributing assets justly and fairly.
